SAVEAS Screenshot

Post by dombrorj » Thu Jan 28, 2010 5:43 pm

Is iMacros for chrome capable of taking screenshots? I keep getting: SyntaxError: unknown command: SAVEAS at line 2

Edit: Never mind... I just noticed the list of available functions on the Wiki, and it looks like its not quite available yet.

Sorry, SAVEAS is not yet supported in iMacros for Chrome.

So.... it's many months later now. The wiki at
doesn't say whether SAVEAS is supported now, and the version history implies that fixes have gone into the SAVEAS support. (Implying that maybe it's supported now.)

But, my newly minted Chrome 3.02 iMacros keeps telling me that SAVEAS is an unknown command.

1) Can the wiki page please list SAVEAS under either "supported" or "not supported", as appropriate?
2) If it's supposed to be supported, why am I getting "Unknown Command"?
3) And if it's not supported, what's the current forecast?

Thanks for asking!

SAVEAS for saving web pages can not be supported yet, as the Google Chrome API does not expose this feature yet. But SAVEAS TYPE=PNG (for taking web page screenshots) will be available with the next iMacros for Chrome update.

I also updated the wiki.
